When Bloggers go Bad

When Bloggers go Bad

Ah, sorry to say it does happen, bloggers do go bad.  When the deadlines become too much, when your creativity has been squashed away by demanding designers and events…. sometimes a girl just *snaps* (or a guy!) and there goes poor Teddy, who never said a mean thing to her in his entire life….  it’s so sad….

Kidding!  I’m kidding gang!  No teddy bears were harmed in the writing of this blog post!  That’s not really blood, its just ketchup!!!!  And its just a rubber knife I am wielding!  I couldn’t even cut a tag off a new dress with that thing!

It’s just me getting ready for my Halloween photos.  I have to say, Halloween is my very favorite time of the year in second life.  There are always haunted carnivals and zombies chasing you, and sometimes really grisly stuff that makes me squeal and squirm at my desk and I wonder what some people are actually thinking because it starts to borderline on just a wee bit *too* demented, you know?  But all in all it’s a lot of fun and I love to dress up and take scary pictures for a month or so, if you want to see some of my old Halloween creations just check my Flickr, I will keep it tame (er!) on Fab Free of course, but in my other blogging world… bwahahaha!!!!!  Look out!

However, I do have a reason for this post (don’t I always???), I’ve been continuing the treacherous Twisted Hunt and came up with this cute and slightly sinister outfit at Maya’s Meshy Stuff.  The shirt has a little evil (also knife wielding) bunneh on it.  It’s very INFP, the cute but can be scary thing, and I fully embrace it!  This is as I said previously a totally free hunt (but you gotta work for stuff!) and the top and skirt were hidden separately.  It’s a fun hunt to get you into that twisted spooky frame of mind for Halloween time.

This outfit fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Spookily yours,

Just a Wee Bit o’ Kawaii Magic!

kawaii magic

Tick Tick Tick Gang!

I’ve got lots of time sensitive goodies for you tonight!  But I couldn’t resist sharing all the fun!

Most time sensitive first!

I ran out just a short while ago and grabbed some super cute and fun items from the designers at So Kawaii Sunday.  My hair is from Kuni, you get the basic pack for 65L and if you want the style pack (I did), that’s also another 65L.  Still a very good deal.  This hair is called Serenity and for some reason it’s not by the so Kawaii Sunday sign, I had to do an area search but it is upstairs for these prices.  That’s where I grabbed mine.  Perhaps because I am a tad bit early!

I also grabbed these cute Sakura Cards (with bento poses) from Unicorn for 65L.  I combined them with my own poses for my full pose.  They pose your hands, but the rest of your body is up to you!  It comes with the magical circle just behind me, the halo.  It turns slowly as you wear it.  Really lovely.

You have all day Sunday (August 29) to grab these and all the other So Kawaii Sunday deals.  I love the cute pink kawaii sparkly everything, so I kind of wait for this with baited breath every Saturday night!

“Just One More Thing, Ma’am” (bonus points if you know what I got this from!)

Now one more thing and thats all the wonderfulness of color and sparkly-ish-ness you see around me.  That is from Vibing and you can find it at the FLF Birthday Bash we have been going on and on about!  It was 50L, it is a sphere and although I just used it for some photos so far it is meant to live in or whatever you want to do with yours and I bet that would just be beautiful and magical!  If you do set up a home in one of these, please do invite me over so I can see what you did!  I bet the imagination is *limitless!*  You have until September 3rd to shop at the birthday bash!

Happy Magical Sparkling, erm, shopping!

❤ Arielle

Felt Cute

Felt Cute
Felt cute, most likely won’t delete later.  And by most likely, I mean definitely.  It’s Monday, it’s hot out, and that calls for a bit of self-appreciation.  Even if it wasn’t Monday and it was freezing out, we need a bit more time penciled into our schedules to remind ourselves just how special we really are.

She’s a Star

Mmmkay, so how pretty is this lingerie?  I am fairly obsessed with the flower detailing on this delicate bra and knicker set (sized for Maitreya) from Star Outlet.  I got it by joining their free group, then clicking on the vendor by the main desk.  Really a stunningly beautiful set, don’t you think? There are a few other group gifts out too while you’re at it.

Add it On

I also happened to pick up the latest group gift from Eliavah while I was out and about.  These beautiful stockings and matching gloves give a certain air of mystery and romance to my look (or at least, I perceive them to be that way!).  I am pretty in love with the gloves – I’ll be able to use them with all sorts of outfits to give them a hint of the gothic romance!  Anyway, the Eliavah group is 50L to join, and there are two other quite nice gifts to grab as well.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Legacy

Gee, I Love this Blog!

AnaSTYLE @ Girls Heaven Event June

Hey Gang!

It’s grey and gloomy as usual where I live so I am soaking up the sun in second life!  Time to put on a cute dress and take a nice walk outside in the sl air!  Ahhhhh.

So as I approach my six month mark here at Fab Free (yes six months have just flown by!  Don’t you agree?) I wanted to revisit a couple of my favorites that have  been blogged, make sure you haven’t missed them!  Cause they are both oh so freaking cute!!!  Squeee!

Gee, I love your hairdo!

Some of you may not be old enough to remember, but there was *actually* a shampoo once upon a time called “Gee your hair smells terrific!”  Literally!  They named it an entire sentence!  Things have gotten a bit fancier in advertising and naming of products since those days.  In second life, we never have to wash our hair, and we can change the style and color in the blink of an eye, so it helps when you have lots to choose from!  I’m wearing a free group gift from Kuni, that has been blogged several times before, including my me (in pink!), and you can click those below, if you want to see how it looks in brown or black, too!), but I just love the braid and the whispy bangs!  The group is free to join, so that makes this cute must-have hair a, well, a must-have!

Boho Fringe!

The second is these shoes from ROC that I saw one day on marketplace and have blogged once before, but I just love them since the day I saw them and I wear them every chance I can, when I am not being my barefoot self, that is!  They go for a mere 50L and they fit:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink

Gee, I’d love to stay but I’m off to find more goodies to bring y’all!  Hope your Monday has been painless!

Queen of my Pink Castle

Queen of my Pink Castle

Heya gang!

I’m back again with more finds for you!  Today’s goodies come to you via a hunt and a group gift!

My cute top is from Starlight Apparel who make this goodie for The King & Queens Hunt, which goes until the last day of the month (May 31).  This is a 1L prize!

My hair is the second goodie I am showcasing, it is from Kuni, it is a free group gift and the group is also absolutely free to join!

As always, all credits for everything I am wearing is below.  😉

Happy weekend y’all!

The Hills Are Alive…

The Hills Are Alive...
The hills are alive with the sound of….freeeeebiiiiiies!  I’m crying it from the mountain tops today, though I feel like I’m often doing that.  I think my catchphrase needs to just be “Oh you like this outfit? It was free!”.  I have a few friends who always giggle after I say it, because they are always expecting my line.  Anyway, back to crying from the tops of mountains!

Powerful

Mangula has a new subscriber gift!  As per usual, it’s super awesome and entirely free.  This one comes with the knotted shirt, pink bustier, skirt and even a pair of knickers that match.  They can all be worn separately, making this one pretty darn versatile.  To get it, just click on the subscribo unit above the front desk, and then head over to the gift section and you’ll find the vendor there.  There are plenty more awesome free gifts while you’re at it!

Sizes

  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Perky
  • Petite

Wait, WHAT?

Oh guys…hold on tight because Pure Poison is having a bit of a clear out with lots and lots of their older creations marked down to just 1L on Marketplace.  I KNOW.  You’ll be rolling in completely gorgeous shoes forever if you click through to all the 1L awesomeness.  You’ll also find some priced at 5L and 10L too.  The tea is that you can grab these goodies for this weekend, and the 1L stuff will be around until April 30th when they will then be deleted FOREVER!  Gasp!  My suggestion to get to the shoe hoard is to head to the Pure Poison MP store, choose “lowest to highest price” and click off “demos” on the bottom left so they don’t show you 50,000 demos.  You’ll find them easily then!  I bought the Katarina sandals for just 1L, and I couldn’t be happier!

Sizes

  • Maitreya

The Problem With Glitter

The Problem with Glitter

There’s a thing about Second Life that I’m ever thankful for, and that’s the ability to wear dresses encrusted with glitter without having to sit down and be uncomfortable (what, you thought it was going to be something earth-shattering and serious?).  Anyone who’s ever worn glitter or paillettes or any type of sparkly substance knows that when you sit down you’ll either feel like you’re depositing sparkles everywhere, or that they’re digging into your flesh.  Or both,  probably both…. But SL to the rescue for all my first world problems yet again!

To Infinity and Beyond!

There are some new group gifts and lucky letter boards over at Beyond right now!  Join the group for just 50L and you’ll get a pretty great array of fatpack outfits.  This dress is one of the newest gifts and it comes with the option of covering it entirely with glitter (and who wouldn’t want that?) or going down a more staid route.  There are plenty more gifts too, so totally worth the join fee.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis

Call Me

I’ll also mention in passing that Boutique #187 has some free accessories at Flow Club for people who join the free Flow group.  The phone was so well constructed that I thought I’d show it off.  There are also some sunglasses, a balloon and an extremely random tongue.  Yeah, you read that right.  Enjoy!

You sparkly things, you!

here a pant, there a pant, everywhere a cute pant!
Old mac donald found a sale ee i ee i oh!

Well its me again gang, Your favorite blonde, psychotic, shopaholic, head in the clouds blogger!  I hope you sang along with me!

As Aline already knows (and she *still* lets me blog!  I tell ya that girl is a saint!) and now you all do too, I love to change the words to songs, I generally make them very silly.  But sometimes they just come out downright BAD!  But that’s the fun in it!

I know, I know, y’all are waiting to find out what goodies I found for you this morning!  So, thanks to the group chat (which is usually loaded with fun info and helpful peeps like yerselves!) I learned of a little part of Scandalize that I (since I’ve been living under a rock, apparently, which someone once told me  lol) is just chock full of freebies!  It’s called Scandals Frees and News.  The group is free to join and it is an entire room of clothes and complete outfits that are totally free!  Really, if they had this sort of stuff back in the dark ages when I was a newbie, well, let’s just say I would have been much better dressed!   You can get an entire wardrobe here!

The cute pants and belt I am wearing are one of the things I found there. They come in this solid color and the same color but with cute little polka dots.  I found so much though don’t be surprised if they pop up in another blog post.  These super cute pants fit:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

OK chickadees, this girl is *starving*! So I’m gonna go find some lunch.  Happy shopping y’all!

Young and Wild and Free

Young and Wild and Free

I am having one of those days where I can’t think of exactly what I want to write about.  Strangely, the only thing that comes to mind looking at my photo is the fact that one should be careful when one has long hair and the candles are lit.  Geezo, inspiration where in the name of pants are you?  I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel here!

Lucid

My top and shorts are the latest free group gifts at Lucid and they are making me feel a bit better about my lack of imagination today.  Join the group for free, and you’ll be able to pick up this little cropped tee as well as the cheery yellow shorts to go with.  There are a few other gifts there too! See, that wasn’t so difficult now was it?

Feel the Love

Feel the Love

Ok FabFree.  First things first, Happy Valentine’s Day!  I want to go on a flowery, goopy rant about how much I heart my FabFree bloggers.  They work tirelessly (without remuneration!) and are constantly cheerful and exuberant about what we do here on the blog.  I was particularly touched by the extra steps that Bunnie and Arielle took the other day when they put together a hunt at our FabFree Info Hub.  These two girls are so sweet, kind and generous that it always makes me grin.  Thank you both so much for your generosity and hard work, it really is wonderful.

What’s at the Hub?

I’m going to show you the lovely hunt gifts from Shanti today, made by the lovely Arielle.   When you search for the little FabFree heart at our Info Hub (it’s a heart with our pretty rainbow on it) you’ll find three items from Shanti.  The Shabby Valentine Dresser is right up my alley (I love Shabby Chic) and is completely free when you wear your FabFree group tag.  With a bit more searching, you’ll also be able to pick up the lovely valentine leggings and booties to go about your day cozy and comfy for 1L each.  How awesome is that?

Legging Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Fitmesh M

I’ll show you the goodies from Paper.Sparrow next time – but if you get a chance to thank Bunnie and Arielle, please do.  They’re awesome.

You’ve got until February 20th to pick up the prizes at the InfoHub!
